Butter Frosting

Hands-On Time: 5min
Cook Time: 5min
Ready In: 10min
Yield: topping for 24 cupcakes

I like to go a little non-traditional and use citrus flavors in this frosting. Any extract or zest will do, use your imagination and see what you can come up with. It's the perfect topping for Fairy Cakes.



  1. Beat butter with an electric mixer for 1 minute.
  2. Add extract and half of the powdered sugar. Beat until fluffy.
  3. Add remaining powdered sugar alternately with milk until frosting is the consistency desired.
